10 of the most expensive homes in the world

Moving on from the unusual properties that are out there. We are usually impressed by just how much things cost and how much square footage your hard earned cash can get you. Therefore, this week we are looking at some of the most expensive homes on the market at the moment. These homes are certainly a little more mainstream than last week’s list.

So let’s take a look at some very pricey property. This is by no means an exhaustive list. One of the properties is the Playboy Mansion of which I’m sure a lot of people would like to have a look inside. While some of these properties just seem to have far too many bathrooms they are all pretty spectacular homes.
